Trever, you are dead on. The one I have is the 2600K. After our discussion
I found http://ark.intel.com/MySearch.aspx?VTD=true which shows which ones
are VT-d capable.
It's interesting that the recommended channel price for the i7-2600K is
$317 while the i7-2600 with no suffix is $294 and has similiar specs but
includes VT-d and TXT.
